Battles of the New Republic – Prashant Jha
Review by Anurag Acharya (#711 13-19 June 2014)
Battles of the New Republic is a meticulously researched book, a tale of aspiration, conviction and empowerment, as well as about anger and dejection with hopes dashed. The plot is almost cinematic with an array of emotions including passion, empathy, ambition, envy, greed, lust, betrayal and revenge. In that sense it is a political thriller.
Jha ends with a note of hope, a tinge of optimism, to remind us of the momentous changes to which he had a ringside seat.
